Texas Freemasons

The Grand Lodge of Texas, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons is the largest of several governing bodies of Freemasonry in the State of Texas, being solely of the Ancients’ tradition and descending from the Ancient Grand Lodge of England, founded on 17 June 1751 at the Turk’s Head Tavern, Greek Street, Soho, London. According to historian James D. Carter, the “The Grand Lodge of the Republic of Texas, A.F. & A.M.” was founded on 16 April 1838. However, its first Grand Master and other grand officers were installed by Sam Houston on 11 May 1838. The Grand Lodge of Texas is one of the largest in the world, reporting 69,099 members in 2019. The current Grand Lodge of Texas facilities were made possible by the fundraising efforts of Waco Masonic Lodge No. 92.
